Maiden didn't end well...she took off in trim, and I was flying her around at about half throttle, making sure of input bad habits, good roll rate....then I decided to open the throttles all the way, and WHAM, the port ESC/EDF shut down...and she cartwheeled into the runway...broke her all to pieces. I knew I was at the upper limit of the ESC's (65 amp)....Obviously, I was too close....If I'd been 3 mistakes high, I probably could have saved her. As it was I about 10 feet off the ground at close to 80 mph.....Pretty good size debris was spectacular !

Oh well, I'll build her again

Yep Les Amis,
Un Excellent Tiny ! Il s'est fait attendre mais il est enfin là ! J'ai en test aujourd'hui le UZ65 de chez Eachine. Une très bonne surprise au déballage et à la mise en route. Bien équipé et plutôt bien conçu, ce petit 65mm possède des hélices tripales de 35mm qui lui donne une bonne puissance, ainsi qu'un VTX séparé de la carte de vol switchable en 25 ou 100mw et tout ça, monté sur un petit châssis résistant au chocs. Les pré-réglages sorti de boite sont bons et le pilotage très agréable ! Mis à part un FOV un peu restreint, je n'ai pas grand chose à reproché à ce nouveau Tiny de la marque pour une somme de 74€ avec un coupon. Bon film à tous, prenez soin de vous et à très vite ...

My first model would have been a hovercraft I made for a school project it was quite small made from lolly sticks covered in tissue, I made the fan from tin, and it had aa cells. It worked and I got top marks.
This prompted a bigger hovercraft with a spitfire diesel engine,it worked well when I could get the engine started.
I went through the model car stage with tamiya beach buggy,. My brother had one and we raced each other.
I bought a second hand racing boat with a glow engine just after I got married,. Had some fun with it but it could be hard work starting and conked out in the middle of the lake many times.
I built a hydrofoil from a kit powered by NiMH battery. It worked well.
Eventually I decided I would learn to fly so joined a model club , made some new life long friends. I built a small scale Piper cub from the sig kit it was lovely covered in nylon and painted with the sunburst scheme, even had opening doors and a pilot.
Got interested in petrol engines so I put one in a second hand T240. It had never flown so was like new. I joined the LMA (large model ass) and went to a meeting where Ian Turney-White took it up for me. He is famous for massive bi planes at the shows. I did the landing and bust the prop, but was pleased I got down in one piece.
I joined a lovely club ,very friendly we flew at a field near Thorner in North Leeds, but moved to acaster malbis near York on some old runways, great place.

I'm pleased to show my next custom RC work - Project Chimera. Callie Graphics pulled through with my custom decals last week and I was finally able to apply them on my project, which is a highly modified 3-year old BlitzRCWorks Deltawing 50mm EDF Jet.

BlitzRCWorks Deltawing 4S 50mm EDF Jet - Project Chimera (3 min 26 sec)

This was a little EDF jet that I picked up from Banana Hobby 3 years ago for $65, and was a surprisingly excellent jet on the stock 3S system. But the stock color scheme was absolutely awful. My friend Brad offered to change the scheme with his airbrush skills, and I accepted his offer.

The overall appearance and high agility represented the Dassault Mirage 2000, so I chose that main scheme. Interesting enough, the side profile also has hints of the F-16 (with its bottom intake scoop and vertical fin), and the turtle deck reminds me of an A-4 - Hence, I nicknamed it the Chimera (the Greek mythical creature which composed of parts from different animals).

The stock 3S system has also been replaced with a 4S setup. A dynamically-balanced XRP 4S 50mm 11-Blade 4200KV Unit has been drop-in fitted, and a ZTW Beatles 40a ESC with 3a SBEC has been installed.

Durability was also a factor. A custom bass wood block has been mounted in the underbelly of the nose section with a curved music wire strake. This acts as a shock-absorbing nose skid that prevents the nose from digging into the grass or turf on landing touchdown. The front intake and intake...Continue Reading
